a weather alert for you. one tennessee town is dealing with heavy flooding after days of rain. this video comes in from whiteville, near memphis. sections of a major road are washed away with five feet of water in some spots. more than 50 people are currently trapped in their homes there as rescue efforts are underway. it is so bad that local and state police can not even get in there to set up road closure signs. >> this water is moving so swiftly, could very easily overturn a car, take a car off the roadway, just too dangerous. this is probably about the worst i've seen it flood. it is always been where we could get something in but it's completely washed out now. martha: well the city just landed a 400,000 grant to build a new bridge. it would raise the entire street by four feet. that doesn't come in time to help this situation though, and hopefully it will help in the future. bill: well a grim picture in the showdown over the debt ceiling about to get a bit more dismal. the white house has no plan b in the debt fight, challenging republicans to allow them to bore row more money or al
